HTC Sensation XE vs Sensation XL

Since HTC have partnered with Beats, they have no doubt been working on new HTC devices which feature the Beats technology and headphones. Both the Sensation XE and the Sensation XL are coming to the UK and it can't be hard to work out which one is better. So we've put together a list of the differences and will let you decide which one is the best for you.

Pricing & Availability

HTC haven't said anything about pricing on the XL yet but I'm guessing it'll be around the same price as the XE.
Also the device will be available in the UK around November, sorry guys over in the US, it won't be available there.

Conclusion

The two devices have their differences in many different forms. The Sensation XL is thinner but it does not offer the same battery life as the Sensation XE. Also the Sensation XL has a bigger screen but it hasn't got as many pixels as the Sensation XE. The two devices seem to counter each other on every end of the scale. They also come in two different colours, one black and one white. There is no better phone here and is solely up to personal preference. Both devices will however come with a set of Beats headphones, the in-ear versions. HTC have said they will be releasing a limited edition of the XL with the Beats Solo headphones and they will be white to match the Sensation XL.
